Red Hat Directory Server

Centralized repository for your identity and user information

Red Hat® Directory Server is an LDAP-compliant server that centralizes user identity and application information. It provides an operating system-independent, network-based registry for storing application settings, user profiles, group data, policies, and access control information.


Red Hat Directory Server simplifies user management by eliminating data redundancy and automating data maintenance. It also improves security, enabling administrators to store policies and access control information in the directory for a single authentication source across enterprise or extranet applications.
